Dozens of people have been injured in clashes between Kolkota police and demonstrators angry about the deaths of 14 people last week in the Indian state of West Bengal.
Tens of thousands of people gathered on Monday for a march organized by the Indian Muslim group Jamiat-e-Ulema Hind. Many threw rocks when they tried to break through a police line and the police responded with baton charges and tear gas.
The marchers were angry about the deaths of 14 villagers who were killed by police as they demonstrated against a project to turn their farmland into an industrial park near the village of Nandigram.
